Terms and Guidelines for Job Advertisements

Careers Online is an online job board which enables employers to advertise employment opportunities.

Careers Online requires a login and employment opportunities, events and appointments are only viewable and accessible to UNSW students, staff and graduates of up to 18 months.

It is important to note that UNSW Careers and Employment does not vet, review or select candidates who apply for opportunities posted on Careers Online, and is not responsible for doing so.

It is the priority of UNSW Careers and Employment to protect the best interests and wellbeing of our students and staff at all times by consistently monitoring job advertisements to ensure they comply with the guidelines below. However, it is the responsibility of the employer, agency or third party recruiter (as the case may be) to ensure that any advertisements submitted by them comply with these terms and guidelines.

Please review the following terms and guidelines prior to placing your advertisement. In placing your advertisement on Careers Online, you are deemed to have accepted these terms and guidelines.

If you require clarification regarding any of these terms and guidelines, please contact UNSW Careers and Employment on 02 9385 5429 or at careers@unsw.edu.au

Please note that the omission of details required by these guidelines or failure to comply with these terms and guidelines in their entirety will result in slowing the approval process, and may result in your advertisement being rejected or withdrawn.
